As Lá….

Lá v Goliath
Ar dtús rinne an Sunday Independent agus nuachtáin eile Sir Anthony O’Reilly iarracht stop a chur le bunú Theilifís na Gaeilge.
Anois tá an grúpa nuachtán is mó sa tír ag léiriú an fhrith-Ghaelachais arís nó is cosúil go bhfuil siad ag iarraidh deireadh a chur leis an aon nuachtán laethúil amháin Gaeilge in Éirinn.
Nó in alt sa Sunday Independent inné, faoin cheannteideal “La (sic) is living in la la land”, maíodh go raibh an nuachtán ag cur an lochta san éagóir ar aontachtaithe as ucht iarracht a dhéanamh maoiníu don nuachtán a ghearradh.
Tugadh le fios fosta, go míchruinn, go raibh an nuachtán tar éis £250,000 a fháil i 2004 ó Rialtas na Breataine anuas ar €250,000 ó Fhoras na Gaeilge.
Is léir nár phléigh an nuachtán an scéal leis an Tiarna Laird nó chuaigh seisean ar an taifead i Lá in eagrán na hAoine agus, i mBéarla, ar an suíomh idirlín, www.sluggerotoole.com.
Ar an suíomh sin, dúirt an Tiarna Laird go neamhbhalbh gur thug sé rogha don dá rialtas - comhionannas maoinithe punt ar phunt a bheith idir an Boord o’Ulster Scotch agus Foras na Gaeilge nó airgead na Gaeilge a ghearradh.
San alt sin dúirt an Tiarna Laird:
“It’s true that I asked questions in the Lords, but it was never my intention that people in Lá would lose their jobs.
“I was simply giving the governments two choices.
“Bring us up to the level of funding that Irish gets, or cut Irish down.”
Ar an Aoine d’fhag Lá slán le Ciarán Dunbar, an chéad fhostaí le post a chailleadh mar thoradh ar an mbagairt seo don nuachtán.
Bainisteoir dáileacháin is margaíochta an nuachtáin ab ea é Ciarán, iarchéimí ó Ollscoil na Ríona i mBéal Feirste.
Tá an nuachtán le hiriseoir a chailleadh go luath agus gearrfar an líon laethanta a mbeidh an nuachtán á fhoilsiú go ceithre lá in aghaidh na seachtaine - Luan go Déardaoin - ag tosú an tseachtain seo.
Beidh cuimhne ar go leor de léitheoirí Lá ar an bhfeachtas nimhneach a reachtáil an Sunday Independent in éadan bhunaithe TnaG roimh 1996 agus an bealach ar lean siad leis an ionsaí ó shin.
Is féidir tacú le Lá trí an achainí idirlín a shíniú ag www.PetitionOnline.com/32130966/petition.html.
Tá breis is 1200 tar éis an achainí idirlín a shíniú agus tá na céadta eile tar éis teachtaireachtaí tacaíochta a chur isteach go dtí an nuachtán.
Is féidir tacú le Lá fosta trí síntiús a ghlacadh leis an nuachtán.
Tá POBAL, scátheagras na Gaeilge sna sé chontae ag reachtáil cruinniú poiblí faoin bhagairt do thodhchaí Lá ar 14 Nollaig sa Chultúrlann in iarthar Bhéal Feirste
Bhí Lá agus grúpaí eile i bpáirt le POBAL nuair a reachtáil an scátheagras feachtas ar éirigh leis le maoiniú a gearradh ó bhuiséad Fhoras na Gaeilge i 2002 a fháil ar ais. D’éirigh leis an bhfeachtas sin agus thug Príomhfheidhmeannach an Fhorais, Seosamh Mac Donncha, le fios nach ndearmadfaí cé a sheas leis an Fhoras in am an ghatair.

As an Sunday Independent…. (uafásach!)….


“La” is living in la la land


THE Irish-language daily La has blamed a campaign by Lord Laird and Lady Sylvia Hermon for its decision to lay off two staff and cut production to four days a week.
The whingeing republicans always find someone else to blame for their travails.
"The Andersonstown News Group has kept La afloat by investing over stg£150,000 in the paper since it went daily in April '03. However, with funding from INTERREG and Foras na Gaeilge being blocked at the instigation of Lord Laird and Lady Hermon, jobs have to go," said La editor, Ciaran O Pronntaigh. "Both these developments are the direct result of unionist pressure on a local civil service only too willing to block an Irish-language newspaper." This is just not true.
Foras na Gaeilge, which gave La €250,000 already this year, is adamant that no political pressure has been brought to bear. Brendan Mac Craith said that La applied for more money under a community scheme to promote the Irish language, but Foras na Gaeilge decided this was not the right scheme to fund this project. They have set up a special committee to find a suitable scheme to give the whingers in La more money.
That's on top of the stg£250,000 they also take from the British government.
La, part of the Andersonstown News Group, is trying to blame anybody it can. Maybe it should look at how it runs its business before lashing out at those trying to help it.

Subject: Liam in la-la land.

Esteemed Editor:

“Whingeing republicans”? Please don’t tell Ian Malcolm that he’s a “whingeing republican”! Ian pens the column “Lámh Dearg” in Lá which gives a distinctive Unionist perspective to the paper.

The paper would be all the poorer without him as it has already suffered from the dismissal of two employees. Ian has also contributed an essay to The Irish Language in Northern Ireland (Ultach Trust). Liam Collins would do well to read that essay along with the others in the book. It is written in English for his benefit.

I suppose that here in America, we have Fox News and in Ireland, you have the Sunday Independent. Has Mr. Collins ever considered sending his curriculum vitae to Rupert Murdoch, just in case the latter may be seeking an Irish correspondent?

Sincerely,
Daithí Mac Lochlainn

F** the Indo! but they were always anti-Gaeilge! They dont have ANY articles as Gaeilge! Did they ever that is the question! I reiterate the need for a law which obligesIrish produced dailies papers to publish a certain amount of Gaeilge weekly-we are in Ireland after all not West Britain or should I say West Skynewsland! Remember that Independent Newspapers were the ones that locked out the workers back in the 1910s! not a progressive company! With new owners things havent changed much though Tony O'Reilly does have some African friends-yeah, Robert Mugabe (A great friend of Democracy!)

Lá will hold a public meeting at the Cúlturlann (Falls Road, Belfast) on Tuesday evening (14th Dec., 7:30 pm)


http://www.nuacht.com/story/?cat_id=1&newsid=8399


Dúshlán dlí le tabhairt faoi chiorruithe Lá
Tá iar-Uachtarán Chonradh na Gaeilge, Séagh Mac Siurdáin, sásta dul chun na cúirte chun airgead na Gaeilge a chosaint ó ionsaithe aontachtaithe, thug sé le fios inné do Lá.
Dar leis an Uasal Mac Siurdáin, a bhí ina uachtarán ar an Chonradh go dtí mí Aibreáin seo caite, níl an bhagairt ar mhaoiniú Lá de bharr brú pholaitiúil tionscanta ag an Tiarna Laird agus an Bhantiarna Sylvia Hermon, níl sí ach ina túsphointe.
Dar leis, dá n-éireodh leis an ionsaí polaitiúil ar mhaoiniú Lá, go mbeadh impleachtaí tromchúiseacha aige don dóigh a dtugann Foras na Gaeilge tacaíocht d’fhiontair theanga fud fad na tíre.
“Mar shampla, déanann Foras na Gaeilge urraíocht ar Ros na Rún – nach mbeadh a leithéid sin i mbaol dá n-éireodh leis an bhrú polaitiúil ar mhaoiniú Lá an tacaíocht sin a chur i mbaol?
“Nílimse sásta mar cháiníocóir go mbeadh airgead atá á infheistiú sa Ghaeilge á bhaint den teanga is á thabhairt do teanga nach ann di,” arsa sé, ag tagairt don éileamh ón Tiarna Laird go mbeadh an maoiniú céanna ag Albainis Uladh agus atá ag an Ghaeilge.
Dúirt sé go mbeadh sé sásta dul chun na cúirte chun an cas sin a throid dá mba ghá é agus thug sé le fios go mbeadh sé sásta fosta dá dtiocfadh daoine eile ó na Gaeltachtaí éagsúla ar bord leis san iarracht sin.
Inné, fosta, tugadh le fios go mbeadh Conradh na Gaeilge ag plé a ndearcaidh i leith na gciorruithe atá á mbagairt ar an nuachtán laethúil Gaeilge ag cruinniú de choiste gnó an Chonartha, ar an Satharn beag seo.
Léiriú eile go bhfuil dlús á chur leis an fheachtas teacht i gcabhair ar Lá, a d’fhógair, an tseachtain seo caite, nach bhfoilseofaí an nuachtán ach ceithre lá na seachtaine agus go mbeadh beirt den fhoireann, ar a laghad, á ligean chun bealaigh de bharr dhá iarratas maoinithe, ceann chuig Interreg agus ceann eile chuig Foras na Gaeilge, a bheith curtha ar an mhéar fhada de bharr brú pholaitiúil ó na hAontachtaithe.
Tá cruinniú poiblí faoin ghéarchéim ag Lá ag eascairt as an bhrú polaitiúil seo á reachtáil ag scátheagras na Gaeilge ó thuaidh, Pobal, ar an Mháirt seo chugainn, 14 Nollaig, i gCultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich ag 7.30in.

Again, PLEASE, sign the petition..

i am a buyer of lá, around twenty issues. in case of financially troubles, why dont they take in some advertising? dont tell me, learning irish, courses etc. would be 'free'- it's not the case.

the condition for the ad is to be in irish, and no offensive content, i dunno want to explain what it means.
thats my personal opinion. ask me for a list of suitable companies- as a non-irish legally.

ok that was me, not logged in. were reading c***, etc., why not to add an 'english' article, something like 'de olde burrow', dunno if tis' spelling is correct, but neither is it the case with these four letters...so the 'brits' cant complain it would be against them.

and i were reading sentences like 'these people should speak english'(on a msg board). i would rather say, that the 'brits' are threatened too, see ukpol.co.uk for some stories.

no its not the case i know the things better. i like it when people are speaking irish.
